Enjabulweni took part in the annual inter-schools athletics meet which saw eight independent schools taking part in the meet. Our athletes were outstanding on the day and we received many medals for our individual events as well as the relay events.
The event also saw our athletes breaking numerous records which was a real proud moment. Out of eight 4 x 100 m relays, Enjabulweni School won five – four of them setting new records. Te sweetest of the relays was the boys under 18 race where our team shaved a massive eight seconds from the previous one to set an impressive 48.8 second record.
Preparing for the event involved lots of hard work from both teachers and athletes. We finished 2nd overall which is the best ever finish for our school. We are proud of our team, well done!
The senior boys’ basketball team was involved in the DHS invitational tournament over the Easter weekend. The schedule in the group stage was very tough, after having played the first game and lost in double over-time, the boys were thrown into the deep end as they had to immediately play the hosts. The contest was tough and the boys crumbled at the hands of our tougher hosts. We lost the game. We then got a chance to redeem ourselves on the second day of the tournament when we had to play a do or die match to qualify for the plate. The team did not disappoint, the team won the game convincingly, came third in the group and qualified to play for the PLATE.
The team won by forfeit as our opponents in the quarter finals of the plate developed cold feet. We qualified for the semi-finals, once again the boys had to endure a tough opposition. We won the game and qualified for the plate final. The plate final was no easy feat; it was a tough contest playing against some boys who play basketball at club level. We matched the opposition pound for pound, but in the end we lost the game due to lack of activity and experience.
Khombo Simelane was selected into the ALL STAR TEAM, well done. The boys are to be congratulated for their efforts and flying the Enjabulweni flag high. Well done boys, better luck next time.
